Now that the shock has worn off Cow Puke is coming around to the trade.

Treliving basically confirmed that there were both on ice and off ice issues surrounding Hamilton but would not, for obvious reasons, elaborate. He also indicated that Hamilton demanded a trade at the end of the season and they have been looking at Hanafin since then.

Tre,icing also confirmed that Fox, via his representative, told the Flames he would not sign in Calgary. So they have been looking at using him in a package since last summer. Ferland was the guy he said was hard to part with.

Carolina on the other hand say Hamilton is now part of their core and his “issues” notwithstanding they have no plans to trade him.

First his Boston teammates all but pack his bags and now due to issues with his teammates in Calgary he demands a trade. Sure sounds like poison. Liking this trade more and more for Calgary. He moves a p,Ayer who demanded a trade, a prospect who says he won’t sign there and a heart and soul 3rd liner for two core players. I’m not a Treliving fan, but this is a good trade all things considered.

Given these issues you can’t tell me Carolina could not have done better.
I started talking about Hamilton's issues 3 years ago:

Notice some doubted the Great Strangelove. :crazy:

Sad to say it but this was a great trade for the Flames...

BTW Wids, the "l" key is up and to the right from the comma key. :mrgreen:

Thanks doc. Fat fingers and small keyboards. Add to that spell check that takes the errors and adds them to your list. Now it changes things on its own and I don't catch it.

By the way, I get kidney stones too. First one I was like hey man I'm through the pause, what's all this pain and blood about. But at the hospital they hit me up right away and everything was all right. No waiting for pain meds, even gave me a script for some heavy duty shit. Ya like St. Paul's just drops that shit in the inner city like there's no tomorrow. But I didn't fill the script. Once you piss em out the pain is manageable.

Sounds like Chaput(RFA) and Wiercioch(UFA) won't be offered a contract and will both walk come July 1

Chaput has been dealt to Chicago for Tanner Kero.

With OEL, Hanafin, Hamilton and Carlson off the table, teams will have to go the trade route for D-men. Tanev's stock rising?

@PierreVLeBron

So 8 x 8 for John Carlson to stay in Washington. The OEL contract ($8.25 M AAV) had a serious impact on the Carlson negotiation
Looks like $8M x 8 years for Carlson.

Salaries are shooting up, how awesome is that Tanev contract now?

Gonna hafta offer Green $7.5M-per on a 2 year deal for any chance WOOing him to Vancouver.

THEN trade Mr Tanev for something sweet. :mex:

Toronto is gonna have to unload cap on us if they’re truly in the hunt for Tavares. Nylander and Martin for tanev.

lol yup Green now the #1 UFA dman this year.

Jack Johnson likely gets overpaid with honourable mention to Hickey and De Haan.

No one on that UFA dman list comes close to Tanev's level defensively or Edler's workhorse big hitter/pk/pp/ 30+pts play, kinda shows how hard it is to acquire these types of defensemen, why it might be in our best interest to keep these two high value dmen to work with Hughes, Juolevi and yes Stecher whom I still have some faith in to get better.

I’m liking the idea of keeping Tanev now IF Hughes plays with the Canucks this year. If he goes back to college I think we could get a decent return including pick(s) for next year. Edler I’d see if he’d waive at the TDD.

But certainly their is mentor ship value in keeping both Tanev and Edler for 1-2 years. Just want an extra pick or two.

I wouldn’t be opposed to pulling a New Jersey at the draft. They were the hosts when we traded Schneider to them and drafted Horvat. If we could get a 1st for one of Edler or Tanev and then go into the draft with something in the top 15 (ours) and also something in the 15-20 range, then do it. If we’re making a TDD deal for one of them it’s a safe bet that we could squeeze a 2nd out of it as well if we threw in a later pick or a B prospect.

A top pairing D or top line F would be a big enough splash I think.

Isn’t next year boasting a weaker class of draftees too?
